    Its very useful to do A level Chemistry
    In the foundation year it says it will be biology chemistry and maths so I don't really know now
    Doing alevel chemistry I'd have todo it privately at home but in thinking would I need alot of help because it's a hard subject

    Noo I'm awaiting my AS results but I only do biology psychology and sociology and will be going into A2 (hopefully)
    So I was thinking to take a gap year doing chemistry As and A2 in 1 year
    But doing it on my own + tuition will it be okay or too hard

    Awh man you should have chosen chemistry in the first place when u took A levels because Chemistry is actually the main subject that unis are looking for.. if u wanna study pharmacy.You can do that ..like AS and A2 chem in a year,that's possible bcoz that's what im doing too aahah.Just a reminder that ur AS and A2 results are only valid within the 2 years of the whole A level course as in your exams can be taken in this 2 yrs only.ALL DA BEST!

    I wasn't able to take chem due to my C grade in maths :/
    And what do you mean, can't I apply for university the following year after completing the alevel chemistry along with the previous alevels iv done?

    Cannot take chemistry A levels just because you get a grade C in Maths IGCSE?I mean the A level results will only be considered if you complete it within 2 yrs...For example..if u've done ur AS in may/June 2016.then your A2 in Oct/Nov...ur final sitting can only be in May/June 2017 ..then uni will accept u.If you do in Oct/Nov 2017..then ur validity for AS results consider more than one year...so uni will reject You know what,you shud really talk to ir teacher about this matter!Good Luck!

    I don't think you need chemistry a level. You can still get into uni for pharmacy with biology instead of chemistry for example I think Lincoln uni accepts your subjects.
